No idea but I love the double tube fork. Looks French to me. But I know nothing.

That is a really distinctive fork, looks very much like a Humber "duplex" fork, see for example this page

If I am right, you just have to hunt down the correct chainring

Yup. it's a Humber, possibly one of the 'sportier' (sic) models as there appears to be no fork lock. BUT it does have a chainguard braze-on on the chainstay so it' is some sort of roadster or 'sports' roadster.

Thanks for the help fella,s
Yeah looks like a Humber
It had a set of 26inch wheels with sturney archer hubs rear dated 47-12 and front is a dyno hub i didnt include in pictures as i thought they were wrong wheels as they need real long reach for the brakes
Not sure how i will build it yet but seems to be a quality frame so better do it justice
